The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is an educational institute/think tank devoted to the study of international migration, to the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees and newcomers (www.cmsny.org). This collection is an artificial collection made up of photographs acquired by CMS from a variety of sources.
This collection contains photographs, prints, and negatives, the majority of which were taken by T.J. Marino. The negatives and photographs mostly lack a description, but oversized materials depict well known Italian Americans, migration agencies, and lithographs from Harper’s Weekly. There is also a significant amount of correspondence related to the creation of the publication Images, A Pictorial History of Italian Americans.
